Easy to use - I haven't used it extensively yet but the grigri definitely gives me peace of mind that skin on my break hand won't get accidentally pulled into the belay device (sometimes can happen with an ATC) when I'm breaking a fall for someone much larger/heavier than I am (I'm 5'2" and 110lbs so this happens pretty often).
standard equipment for roped climbing. Great if used properly.
Easy to use and safe. I use it for indoor leading and toproping. hopefully will be taking it outdoor soon.
Gri is mandatory on multipitch climbs.
Once you get used to using this, it's really the only way to go for safe and easy belaying.
Have only used it at one outing, so far so good.
Fantastic construction and quality with incredible company to back it's product. I recommend this for some one looking for an option when it comes to belaying on outdoor top roping. I prefer using a traditional ATC device when belaying lead personally. The gri gri can hose your climber if your not proficient with it, it tends to lock up if your too agressive/fast with your movements.
Love it. It's solid, it works, gives me some comfort when I am climbing with a less experienced belayer. Its a bit smoother than my click-up which I like when using the fat ropes at the gym. I still like the natural feel using the click-up, but the grigri is a great addition especially at the gym where the cypher click-up will stick sometimes on the really fat ropes.
Works great on my 9.5mm rope. Snaps tight if jerked. Great first-learning tool and confidence builder while learning to set anchors and learn ropework. Now I can learn more with traditional ATC cinch to reduce friction on rope and extend rope life, but will always use this in critical situations. Easy to test the snap-jerk without putting your entire weight on it.
